Practice at Your Best

Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS) is looking for a dermatologist to join our amazing team.

CUVS is a unique hospital – a private practice and an independent subsidiary of Cornell University, bringing the best of both worlds and also something quite different. We are specialist-run. Our specialists are a cohesive team of clinicians who strongly believe in collaboration, communication, respect, and lifelong learning, and are actively involved in strategic medical and organizational decisions. We pride ourselves on our phenomenally and uniquely positive culture.

​CUVS has specialists in emergency-critical care (5), internal medicine (3), surgery (2), radiology (2), oncology (2), ophthalmology, dentistry-oral surgery, cardiology and anesthesiology. We have 4 residents; no interns.

We fully understand and appreciate the unique needs of each specialty, and work with the specialists to create the optimal service.

Our services are further supported by strong interdepartmental collaborations, including a 365-day/year criticalist-staffed ECC department.

We have a large and diverse caseload, and a clientele that are willing and able to pursue the best medical options for their pets. Our sophisticated infrastructure, technology and training facilitate optimal functioning for the busy specialist, as well as remarkable client satisfaction.

​While our hospital operates as a private practice, our specialists have many opportunities for collaboration with Cornell, as well as teaching and clinical trials internally and with the College or other institutions.
